 Welcome all New Students!

We excitedly await your arrival this summer. To assist in your transition to Anna Maria we are offering a few different options for your orientation. For freshmen, you can choose either a one day SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) program where you will register for classes, meet new

classmates and participate in a variety of activities; or, you can register for one of our three, week-long Esther’s Dream programs. Click on any of the links below to learn more


about the programs offered. For transfers, a one half day SOAR program is offered for you to register for classes. An enthusiastic and welcoming staff awaits you at the program you choose.

And, of course, family and guests are welcome to attend whichever program you choose. Special sessions are offered that will provide valuable information. During SOAR, there will be special programming for parents that will address a variety of topics related to their sons’ and daughters’ transition to college. A similar session will be offered on the Friday morning of each Esther’s Dream program.

Please let us know how we can assist you throughout this process and we look forward to seeing you thisKelly and Amcat summer!
